    With absorbing power, Emory M. Thomas tells the story of one of the most revered figures in American history. A story of triumph and tragedy, this stunning biography provides a fascinating glimpse at the man behind the Civil War legend. Revealing the "whole" Lee in this enthralling, detailed saga, Thomas portrays him as a man driven by the paradoxes in his own personality. Here is the Lee who is both a legend and a man. Heroic and larger than life in battle; insecure and unfulfilled in private life.

    Story

    A very interesting study of the times of America before and during the life of Robert E. Lee. Much can be learned about life in the past by such works but I often found myself wondering at what I felt was the injection of personal ideas, and interpretations of the author. I try to imagine how I might have dealt with such issues should I have written the book myself. I plan to take other works on the life of Robert E. Lee and see what they have to say.

    December 2012, a massive solar storm knocks out the power grid. Three hundred million Americans are suddenly faced with a survival situation. They have no water, electricity or fuel. Food rapidly disappears from the store shelves, not to be replaced. Only three percent will survive. Those three percent will have much in common. What does it take to be one of them?

    Story

    I knew I wanted to buy this book for the Learning Experience I would gain. I am not disappointed. In fact I am listening to it for a 2nd time to hear the lessons again.

    I live in the edge of the Feral Hog region of this part of the State of Texas. I drive through their turf everyday, and know they are very dangerous. Who ever imagined a possibility that man would become a menu item for the Wild Hog population?

    Very interesting work by the author. I almost didn't buy it because it was under a 6 hours listening time. However, I did not use a credit, and paid for it outright. It was worth it, and hope to see volume two here soon.

    Glen Beck, the number-one New York Times best-selling author and popular radio and television host, revisits Thomas Paine's Common Sense with one purpose: to galvanize Americans to see past government's easy solutions, two-part monopoly, and illogical methods, and take back our great country.

    Story

    A wonderful work by Thomas Paine read by Glen Beck. I listened to this audio book almost three times before laying it aside. I will pick it back up again, and again I am sure. The first portion is comment from Glen, and I found it very informational and encouraging. You can the reader was full of passion and at times the rise of the voice was almost irritating. However, the context was 100% worth the listen.

    The actual work of Thomas Paine is priceless. I agree this should be required reading and study for every young person in America, and even the world. Very much worth your time to consider.
